Spirit can absorb a fetish/talon into its own pattern, increasing its strength and power. The spirit must make physical contact with the fetish, roll Gnosis difficulty the fetishes' rank. Weaver spirit can only absorb while undisturbed; any attacks made upon it will disrupt it and it will have to reactivate the Charm from scratch. The spirit gains 1 dot of gnosis for each rank absorbed; the cost is 8 power and the effect is not instantaneous; a level 1 fetish takes 5 min to absorb; a level 3 fetish takes an hour; a level 5 fetish takes 12 hours.

Access Caern[]

Allows spirit to access the fundamental nature of a caern (wisdom, enigmas, etc.,) to facilitate other Charms or other events. Cost is 6 power.


Allows spirit to "borrow" a small object from the physical world. Object disappears from the material world and appears in the Umbra. At the end of the scene, the object disappears from the Umbra and reappears in the physical world. If object is moved or hidden while in the Penumbra, it reappears in the appropriate place corresponding to its new location. Item cannot be removed from the Penumbra into a near realm however, any attempt to do so immediately shifts the item back into physical world. Roll Gnosis difficulty= the local Gauntlet; cost is 1 power for a set of keys/lighter; 2 power for an item smaller than a normal 16 oz drinking glass; 4 power a wine bottle or phone book. An item as large as a laundry basket or suitcase costs 6 power and is the maximum size that can be acquired using this Charm.

Ghosts with this charm can not only borrow small objects but if they invest a dot of mana into it, they can create an artifact (see background Artifact) which remains in the Dark Umbra.


spirit can magnifies target's pain during combat. The target's dice penalties for wounded state are doubled and if penalties are higher than their action pool, must spend a willpower to take an action. Cost is 3 power, duration is one round.

Airt Sense[]

Spirit senses the paths within the Umbra which are called “airts”. By spending 1 power and rolling gnosis difficulty 6, they can find a particular thing/place/person and make their way to them. A botch will lead the spirit astray. Useless during Umbral storms.

Animate (Banes, Ghosts)[]

Allows a ghost to take over a dead body and send it against the living. Roll Gnosis vs local Shroud/Guantlet. A zombie thus animated has Physical Attributes of 3 each; 7 no-penalty Health levels and a Brawl of 3 but no other Attributes. It only works with one corpse at a time. These zombies will be automatically killed if head is severed; the difficulty to ignite them on fire is 4; immolation will cause the corpse to turn to ash in a matter of turns and cause the ghost to retreat. Cost is 5 power.


Spirit may manifest in front of a mortal (or other) without assuming a material form. They cannot, however, effect the material world in any way. Each use costs 5 power.


By spending 2 power, spirit gains a soak equivalent to its Gnosis for remainder of scene.

Assess Character[]

Spirit may evaluate an individual's general characteristics (attributes or wp/rage/gnosis etc) by rolling Gnosis difficulty 7. The number of successes determine accuracy of assessment. Costs 2 power.


By intruding on the victim's thoughts, the spirit jumbles what the victim says or hears. Simple words are misheard and complex conversations turn into gibberish. Roll Gnosis with difficulty of target's willpower. This Charm effects a single target (spirit or living) and lasts 10 minutes per success. The cost is 3 power.


Allows spirit to direct its Rage at opponents from a distance. Depending on the spirit, this effect may take different forms. Some spirits send bursts of fire at targets while others use glass, objects in room,lightning and even swarms of insects. The spirit causes its Rage in dice of aggravated damage. No roll to hit is required. However, this attack drains a point of permanent power from the spirit.

Blast Flame[]

Spirit can blast a gout of flame at opponents. Cost is 2 power per die of damage to roll in attrack. This flame causes typical fire damage to targets.

Blighted Touch (Bane or Tainted)[]

Spirit can deliver a blight unto target. If the spirit attacks successfully, the target's player must make a Willpower roll immediately. If they fail, the negative characters dominate personality for next few hours. Is the target botches, they gain the flaw Taint of Corruption and the spiritual taint inside of them is now detectable via gift Sense Wyrm. Cost is 5 power.

Blood Sucking[]

Spirit can suck blood from a target and gain power from it. The spirit must enter combat with its victim (unless blood is being given in chiminage) and gains 1 power per 1 point of damage (house rule) inflicted. If the victim is a vampire, the point is subtracted from blood points rather than health levels. Cost is 3 power.

Bolts of Wrath[]

Spirit rolls rage vs. target's willpower to attack; if successful, victim feels as if they were struck with bolts of fire that cause excruciating pain from the inside out. Living Targets (without gift/ability like Resist Pain) must make a willpower difficulty 8 roll to not fall to the ground and helplessly writhe in pain for duration of the charm. The Charm lasts for 1 turn (minute) for each dot of Rage (if Shifter/Spirit) or Willpower (if other) the target has; this charm is using the target's own strength against them. This Charm may be cast more than one on the same target, stacking both the pain and the duration of helplessness but it does not by itself cause any lasting damage. Cost is 5 power per bolt.

Break Reality (Wyld & Special Spirits)[]

Spirit can disrupt the reality of a substance and thereby modify its umbra form. For example, spirit could create an umbra door in a wall to allow itself to travel through. The extent off attempted change and how interesting, sensible or clever it is can help set the difficulty; otherwise roll Gnosis dif 6. Spirit only spends power (5) when the charm fails. A botch, however, is extremely harmful to spirit itself and causes it to spend a point of gnosis as well.

Break Wind[]

Spirit releases a vile, pungent order from an orifice. All who smell this thick, rolling greenish gas must make a Willpower roll or choke and fall on ground or run for fresh air. Radius is initially 3 yards but can spread windwards for three turns. If the victim is a Garou who cannot escape the area of effect, they must roll to resist frenzy. The cost is 5 power.

Allows spirit to bind target into the Pattern Web. Roll Willpower with difficulty set by Garou/Spirits's Rage or other type of victim's Willpower. Each success subtracts 1 from living victim's Physical Attributes or 1 power from a Spirit. When target's power or Attributes drop to zero, the victim is bound fast into the Pattern Web until freeds.

Anyone inhaling the cloud must make a willpower roll dif 8 (unless they have gift/merit/ability that mitigates) or begin choking on it helplessly, unable to do more than roll around on the ground or crawl from the area. The radius is initially 3 yards around the spirit and the cloud will drift on the wind for 3 further turns before dissipating. Any Garou caught in the cloud for more than 1 turn must make a frenzy check. Cost is 5 power.

Cleanse the Blight[]

This Charm is similar to the Rite of Cleansing, in that it purges spiritual corruption in its vicinity. Roll gnosis at difficulty determined by strength of the Blight. Most spirits have a limitation such as can only use in wooded areas, can only effect bodies or water, tainted living creatures, etc. Cost is 5 power.

Thereafter, for each point of rage that is spent and/or each failed willpower roll in the spirit's vicinity for the duration of the scene, it gains 1 power. If other characters have emotional outbursts without dice rolls but they seem applicable, the spirit may gain 1 additional power per character having an outburst of intense anger, grief, passion, fear, etc. Power cost is 10 for most spirits 2 power for ghosts; duration is rest of scene.

Deep secrets, Dark Secrets (the flaw), require roll of Gnosis vs. target's Willpower for the spirit to know the living person's secret. Cost is 3 power.


The spit may take the form of anything it desires. It gains only the form and visage of its new shape, not its powers or abilities. If the spirit wishes to appear as a specific individual, roll willpower difficulty 6. Cost is 5 power.

Spirit can grab cellular and digital packets coming from or going to phones and pages.

Finding a particular stream of packets such as specific conversation, requires first a Gnosis roll, then Willpower against same local Shroud/Gauntlet rating. After having consumed these packets, the spirit can recount the information to others at any later date if it so chooses or is compelled to.

Solidify Reality (Weaver)[]

Enables Weaver spirits to spin the Pattern Web, thus reinforcing the laws and rules of the Weaver upon aspects of the Umbra. Activated with willpower roll.

The effect lasts for about a day; charm can only be performed once a day on target by any/all spirits or while otherwise active on target- it will have to wear off before minions of the Weaver try again or another attempt in case of failure made 24 hours later. Most commonly, Pattern Spiders perform this charm on each other before entering combat. Power cost is 1.

Spirit Wall (Weaver)[]

Same Charm as Spirit Static with different name.


Spirit can choke someone on the physical plane without being materialized. Works across the Shroud/Gauntlet. Roll Rage difficulty set by victim's willpower. Each success reduces victim's stamina by 1; when it reaches 0, they fall unconscious. If spirit continues to suffocate victim, they lose 1 health level (non soakable) per turn/minute until incapacitated. Power cost is 5 per target.


This is a lesser form of the Charm===Corruption. The spirit can convey a sensory image and suggest the target follow it.

Tech Sense[]

Spirit can become aware of all technological events transpiring near the spirit in the physical world. They will be able to sense and identify cars, cell phones, power lines, ipods, etc but must roll Gnosis with difficulty of local Shroud/Gauntlet in order to focus upon a single item and notice details about it or person using it. power cost is 1. Most typically possessed by Weaver and City spirits.


Spirit can use this charm to create an overpowering aura of raw, overwhelming terror. Target must make willpower roll difficulty 8 or collapse in fear or run away. Garou must make a frenzy check; if they frenzy it will be a fox frenzy and they will try to run from scene. In Dusk, this charm -will- effect other spirits, vampires, Shifters, etc. but does not work through the Shroud/Gauntlet. The terror radiates outward from the spirit in roughly 50 feet in all directions and last five turns (minutes); a willpower roll to resist the fear is required each turn. Cost is 5 power.

Spirit can unerringly track its prey under almost any circumstances (Storyteller discretion). Cost is 5 power.

Umbral Storm[]

Spirit can cause great downpour in surrounding Umbra. Due to the strange nature of the Umbra, it is not always just water that falls from the sky. The power cost is 5 for a storm one mile in diameter with 40 mph winds. The size of storm increases by 10% or the mph by 10 for each 2 additional dots of power the spirit sends. Storms created by this charm generally last until they die down naturally.


Spirit can cause the Umbra to shake with such force that all those standing are thrown to the ground. Everyone within the radius suffers bashing damage from the spiritual concussion equal to half the spirit's rage, rounded up.


Spirit can lift human-sized creatures up into the air with a successful Willpower roll. They can drop them at a whim (with standard falling damage) or lower them safely. Characters with flying or levitating or other abilities can use them freely.


With a touch (often a kiss), the spirit grants a single air-breather the ability to breathe water and withstand the pressure of great depths for a pre-determined time negotiated by the spirit and target. The power cost is at 2 to provide this effect for 1 scene; it would cost 20 to provide it permanently.

Waves (water spirits, banes, ghosts)[]

By turning waters to froth, spirit can try to drown victims, upset boats, pull surfers or swimmers down beneath. This Charm creates strong currents on or under the surface of any liquid. Cost is 5 power for 50-foot radius and lasts for 1 scene. The strength of the current is equivalent to the spirit's rage.

Wood Warp[]

The spirit twists all wood within a 10-foot radius into new and interesting shapes. Unless the wood has been magically protected, or is part of a Fetish of other mystical item, the Warp is automatic. If object is protected, spirit rolls Rage against the item's level + 5 (a level 5 talisman would be difficulty 10 to warp). Success reshapes the object to shape that pleases the spirit; it cannot be bent back into shape again without magical spell or Gift. Cost is 2 power per use.
